Marine Ever After ties together two themes that aren’t normally meshed so well, a one night stand and a long distance relationship. After all how sexy can a phone call be? Well, with the right Marine, it can not only be sexy but totally sweet. Another interesting mix, sexy and sweet. Yes, the sex is hot with a touch of BDSM. You’ll wish you were Lily or that you could find your own Paul. But, there is a soft side to this tough Marine and it comes across in such a way that you’ll just melt. Dedication, duty and loyalty are Marine qualities but expect to see more than just the Marines having them. Super story that while I’m not sure is always realistic, such as moving 5 weeks prior to your due date to a foreign country, I loved the emotions, connections and the characters.
This story is part of Heather Long’s Always a Marine series. All of the books can be read independently of the others but characters from previous books appear in later ones…..and sometimes the other way around.
What started as a one night stand ends up being so much more. Two very busy and dedicated professionals, one a Marine and the other an emergency room nurse, are in the same wedding party and find instant attraction. Their one night together made an impression on both of them but a few months later Lily discovers she’s pregnant. What to do? Paul is a Marine. Lily hates that life. She grew up as an Army brat and never wants to live that life style again. And, it’s not like they could just get together and talk. Paul is stationed in Germany while Lily is still in Texas. Is it possible to figure out something that each of them can live with?
Marine Paul Torres is used to women who enjoy the pleasure of the moment and whom he can bed with a wink and a smile. But with so many of his friends settling down, he’s turned on by the allure of finding the right partner as well. Even more so when he meets Lillianna Hansen while attending a wedding.
After a passionate night, Paul wakes to find her gone and though he wants more than a one-night stand with the alluring Lily, his limited leave is up and he’s forced to return to active duty.
All Lillianna thought she wanted was a good time. But Paul’s attention—even from thousands of miles away—is hard to resist, and while she tells herself repeatedly she doesn’t want a relationship with a Marine, she can’t deny the consequences of their passionate night.
When she finds out she’s pregnant, she’s forced to reach out to Paul. But is she ready to let the father of her child be her Marine Ever After….
